“. . . And we are enabled to apprehend at all what is sublime and noble only by the perpetual instilling and drenching of the reality which surrounds us. The universe constantly and obediently answers to our conceptions; whether we travel fast or slow, the track is laid for us.”
Omnipresence. The concept alone can be overwhelming based on its traditional definition of being present everywhere at the same time. And we struggle with how to be in multiple places at the same time. It seems elusive since we are overlaying our current perception of literally being physically in many places at the same time.
The other lens through which we view omnipresence is that of mind and emotion, where we want to be wholly in the moment of the mind, body and soul. Simply put to not be distracted and to be in a state of mindfulness where we let thoughts flow in and out of our minds with no judgement.
The concept of omnipresence that I would like to explore with you is the omnipresence of you. We are all divine beings that possess omni-attributes. These are all-knowing, all-powerful and present everywhere. The Universe—you—knows the track laid out, where you have been, where you are and where you are going.
You know what needs to be done or not done, where to be or not to be, who to be with or not to be with; what feels “right,” or not right for you; and when to take a risk or try something new or not. These are your instincts and they make you all knowing. Plus, all your experiences in this lifetime and others have given you infinite wisdom.
You are all-powerful. You have the power to do—to follow your instincts, make decisions and take action. And you will always be wherever you need to be to put your actions into motion, therefore omnipresent. We sometimes lose sight of the omni-presence of ourselves since we view ourselves as being restricted to a given place at a given time.
As part of the Universe and being divine you are present everywhere. You are pervasive and infinite. Your mind, body and soul cannot be confined to one place or one time. You are not limited by time and space. You/your energy is constant. It dwells where you have been and with people you have met. The impact of you is forever lasting.
You are completely present in the Universe. You will draw near to anyone who draws near to you. On your path or track—past, present and future, and all the moments of your daily existence—you are present as if you were nowhere else.
